Was it a case of his memory failing, or just a blatant lie to pander to voters?
We may never know.
Clearly, the Joe that is being gently pushed out of his basement in brief stints isn’t the same Joe Biden that debated Paul Ryan in 2012. That Joe Biden seemed to be mostly there and was able to hold a thought for more than 30 seconds without notes.
Joe Biden is also a serial liar and a plagiarist. He lifted portions of the British Labour leader’s speech just replacing his own family details. What kind of a person does that?
In times gone by, he’d be one of those old-timey snake oil salesmen with the carpetbag and the “miracle elixir” that would solve all maladies great and small. Maybe it was watching these pitches live when he was a young whippersnapper where he learned a thing or two on how to sell a product that is completely ineffective to the gullible masses. That would explain why he was a sitting Senator for so many decades without accomplishing anything of note except the 1994 Crime Bill that he is distancing himself from…
But I digress…
On Monday in Pennsylvania, Joe Biden made a rare appearance in front of the media and it was something else.
He took a moment to call President Trump as a liar for saying that Joe was going to ban fracking. He said, “I am not banning fracking. Let me say that again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me.”

What if it’s Joe Biden that’s lying about Joe Biden?
During the Democratic primaries, Joe said that a Biden administration would end fracking and stop fossil fuels.
Americans For Tax Reform posted this compilation video of Joe saying that he was against fracking and fossil fuels.

He seems to be pretty adamant that there would be “no new fracking” and that he was committed to eliminating fossil fuels.
So, what do you think, ClashDaily readers?
Biden was batting 1000 in the presser on Monday.
Joe blamed “right-wing militias” and not BLM or Antifa for violence in Democrat-run cities, and even the cameras couldn’t take the lie.

And then, this happened when he tried to speak about the pandemic…
This is why the Biden campaign doesn’t want him to leave his basement — this guy isn’t playing with a full deck and it is so irresponsible that the media covers this up… pic.twitter.com/HJ2dJI3jpx

I almost feel bad for the guy…but then I remember what he and Barry cooked up with the FBI to take down General Flynn, and I don’t mind that he’s ending his political legacy with this shameful basement campaign.
It’s pretty awful that Jill is letting him be exploited by the Democratic party like this, but that’s not Joe’s fault. That’s the fault of the people around him using him as a puppet for the far-left so they can push through their agenda with a “moderate” face.
